With Wondering Awe

 

Lyrics

  1. 1. With wond’ring awe the wisemen saw

    The star in heaven springing,

    And with delight, in peaceful night,

    They heard the angels singing:

  2. [Chorus]

    Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna to his name!

  3. 2. By light of star they traveled far

    To seek the lowly manger,

    A humble bed wherein was laid

    The wondrous little Stranger.

  4. 3. And still is found, the world around,

    The old and hallowed story,

    And still is sung in ev’ry tongue

    The angels’ song of glory:

  5. 4. The heav’nly star its rays afar

    On ev’ry land is throwing,

    And shall not cease till holy peace

    In all the earth is growing.
